Tiger Woods confirmed on Monday what everyone else has already known. The 14-time major winner used an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America" to promote both his new book and the possibility of a comeback to the Masters on the anniversary of when his legendary career was sparked.
Woods, whose book "The 1997 Masters: My Story" relives his first major tournament victory at just 21, details his run becoming both the youngest ever to win the green jacket and first African-American to take the top spot in the event's history.
Will there be a celebrated return in April?
"God, I hope so," Woods said. "I'm trying. I'm trying everything I can to be able to get back and play. I love that event. It's meant so much to me."
The 41-year-old has been dragged down by injuries in recent years and recently withdrew from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on Feb. 3.
